Abstract/OtherAbstract:
ST-segment changes during exercise testing can be attributed mainly to ischemia, but also, in some patients, to other physiological parameters, such as body position or hyperventilation, making ECG exercise test interpretation more complex. Here we describe the case of a patient who had an electrocardiographically positive exercise test, in order to illustrate the correlation between arm position and ST changes during exercise testing.
